The Gospel of John is the fourth of the four gospels in the New Testament which describe the life and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth. It begins with the witness and affirmation by John the Baptist and concludes with the death, burial, Resurrection, and post-Resurrection appearances of Jesus. Of all the books in the New Testament, John is the most popular.
By the beginning of the second century, the author of the fourth Gospel had come to be accepted as the disciple, John, which has been the tradition ever since. However, revisions and additions to the text took place over a period of at least 50 years by three separate authors until the text came to reside in its present-day form in about A.D. 95. The author is self-identified near the end of the book as the disciple whom Jesus loved. Download and start listening now!
